The Friends have finally come out of hibernation and it’s time for a book sale. This sale will be smaller than ones in the past and will have the following categories only: Fiction, Mystery, Biography, History books and Children’s readers.

The Manual Training School adjacent to the Library is the sale site. The Members only sale is Tuesday, Aug. 3rd from 4 to 6 pm. Everyone is welcome on Wed., Aug 4th from 10 am to 4 pm.

As masks are recommended at this time all Friends’ volunteers will be wearing them. Also hand sanitizing will be available. Tables and books will be spaced out to prevent crowding. Hand held baskets will be sanitized between use.
